Dental Bridges in Colombia FAQs
What are dental bridges?
Dental bridges literally bridge the gap created by one or more missing teeth. A dental bridge is a fixed (meaning cemented in and not removable) appliance that are designed to fill those gaps with realistic looking and feeling teeth. These false teeth are called pontics. Dental bridges are supported by natural teeth or implants.
When is a dental bridge a good option?
While a dental implant is often the preferred choice for tooth replacement, there are some cases where a dental bridge is the best option. This is true when the adjacent teeth need crowns anyway, bone levels are too low to support an implant, or the patient’s medical history is unfavorable for implants.
What are the benefits of dental bridges?
Restore your smile
Restore the ability to properly chew and speak
Maintain the shape of your face
Distribute the forces in your bite properly by replacing missing teeth
Prevent remaining teeth from drifting out of position
How many days will I have to be in Colombia to get dental bridges?
Dental bridges are done in 3-7 business days, depending on quantity.
How long do dental bridges last?
With routine dental visits and proper home care, dental bridges can last 10-15 years.
How do I care for my dental bridge?
Bridges do not require a lot of additional care over and above good brushing and flossing. The most difficult part of maintaining a bridge is to adapt floss underneath the ‘false’ tooth in order to keep that area clean. Your dentist will assist you with this.
What Is the process of getting dental bridges?
Work is done in 2-3 sessions, each lasting 1-2 hours.
During the first appointment, you and the dentist will discuss your desired shape, size, spacing, and shade of dental bridges. During the first visit for getting a dental bridge, the abutment teeth are prepared.
Preparation involves re-contouring these teeth by removing a portion of enamel to allow room for a crown to be placed over them.
Based on this feedback, the dentist will create temporary dental bridges with a lighter, more flexible, but less durable material.
When you and the dentist are both happy with the temporaries, an impression will be made which will be used by the lab to custom create your permanent dental bridges.
Once they’re ready, you will return for a second appointment where the dentist will remove your temporaries and place the permanents.
You will experience a little sensitivity during these few days.
Will it be difficult to eat with dental bridges?
Replacing missing teeth with a dental bridge should actually make eating easier. Until you become accustomed to the bridge, eat soft foods that have been cut into small pieces.
Will dental bridges change the way I speak?
It can be difficult to speak clearly when teeth are missing. Wearing a dental bridge with the anterior teeth in their proper relationship will help you speak properly.
Is the procedure painful?
The short answer is no. Before the procedure, the dentist will apply local anesthesia to numb the area. In general, the dentist will test if the patient still feels anything, asking if the area hurts when poked or prodded.
If the answer is yes, then the dentist will wait for a few more seconds or minutes to allow the anesthesia to settle.
